Gfinity Elite Season 2 is looming ever closer and with the October 6th start date announced it's time we share our roster for the second installment of the hugely popular series. With the first season having brought over 40,000 hours of action broadcast, 220m impressions on social from fans and nail-biting finales in Street Fighter V, CS:GO and Rocket League broadcast to over 3m fans around the globe, season 2 promises to be even bigger and better, running through the 9th of December.
Following the incredibly successful Gfinity Elite Series season one, we are extremely pleased to bring back all the competitive professional gameplay live at the Gfinity Esports Arena and broadcast online and on linear television starting the 6th October. We also welcome back some of the best players in the competitive gaming community and look forward to seeing the newly discovered talent that comes from the Challenger Series via the Elite Draft. - Neville Upton, CEO, Gfinity plc
There has been a bit of a change in schedule, however, as Rocket League matches will be moving to Saturday mornings, with CS:GO staying on Saturday nights, so adjust your calendars accordingly!
And so, without further ado, here's Method's full roster for all three games:
The Rocket League team, lead by team captain Linus "al0t" Möllergren, did very well in Season 1, finishing in 2nd place and having some amazing and dominant matches throughout, and they'll be gunning for that top spot come October 6th.
